Had lunch with 12 of my friends today. We pre-booked and all paid the requisite £5 deposit. The majority of lunchers had also pre-ordered their meals - mine was fish and chips. A number of lunchers had sandwiches, or soup and sandwich, a few had dishes which would have been prepared in advance - fish bisque, beef stroganoff etc. They all received their lunches and myself and 1 other diner, who had ordered the Pie of the Day were kept waiting for such a long time that several at the table were already finishing their lunches.
When it arrived - the presentation was lovely, on a wooden board and with 'newspaper' printed greaseproof - however the chips were soggy and cold, the fish which looked beautifully battered was swimming in oil and the underside of the batter was still raw. The only edible portion of my meal was the fish inside and the ramekin of mushy peas.
Don't know if they have a new chef - if so, please offer the South African Chef his job back at double his salary. Won't be going there again in a hurry.
